Morning outlook

The wet remnants of Tropical Depression Erika sit just south of Puerto Rico and are slowly moving westward at 5-10 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

There's been talk of this system redeveloping into a tropical cyclone, but upper-level winds still aren't favorable. No matter. This system will bring plenty of rain to the islands it crosses. Shower and thunderstorm activity actually has increased over the past few hours.

The most recent wave off the coast of Africa and south of the Cape Verde Islands has changed little over the past few hours. It'll be a few days before this develops into anything worth watching.
